From the Kentish Gazette of Tuesday 16 November 1869:
The Accident on the Night of the Fire at Chart Court Lodge. – On Tuesday an inquest was held at the Swan Inn, Great Chart, before Mr Delasaux, coroner for East Kent, on the body of Daniel Giles, aged 44, who met with an accident on the night of the 1st November with two others. Captain Reid was chosen foreman of the jury. The deceased was sent from Great Chart to Ashford on the night of the fire at the Court Lodge to procure fire buckets. On the return journey, while driving along the road beyond the National Schools, where the highway runs between two banks, in company with Mr E. Hill, foreman, and Mr Herring, fishmonger, a sudden jerk threw Edward Hill on to the back of the horse, upset the cart, and threw Herring and deceased on to the ground. It was stated that they were driving steadily at the time, as the night was so dark that they could not see their way. As soon as Hill discovered that the cart was upset, he got off the horse and went back to look for his companions. Deceased was insensible; he was brought back to Ashford, and medical aid was obtained. Mary Ann Hayward deposed to attending the deceased from Thursday last until his death, which took place on Monday night from the injuries he received. A verdict of “Accidental Death” was returned. A subscription is being made for the widow, and Mr Walter Hill will receive sums on her behalf.
